Sometimes we get so caught up in the moment...in the emotions...that it's easy to forget to follow through with our thoughts. It's easy to meander through our twisting thoughts...to not look ahead and see where this fleeting piece of time will join together with another piece of fleeting time...where will it lead?
A moment of joy.
A moment of redemption.
A moment of grace...for ourselves or someone else?
Or will it join with another moment...perhaps a wisp of bitterness or frustration and twine around discouragement or a desire to justify and unload?
Will it lead to a time that can't be taken back...to harsh words and dissension?
Yesterday I had a difficult encounter with myself. It's dangerous, that kind of encounter. Teetering on the edge of reason and clarity or total self focus...of holiness or flesh...wisdom or foolishness.
